Don’t Stress Yourself
With just a few days left for CAT 2019, don’t have a lot on your plate. Keep your motivation level high of entering into desired B-school. You just need to brush the concepts that you have studied. Don’t touch any new areas. Manaswi who bagged 9.14 percentile in CAT 2018 shares his strategy by stating that “CAT not only checks your exam knowledge, but also your mental strength, and how you can handle exam day stress. So, I had a plan prepared for the last seven days in advance. This was the idea of my teacher, and according to the plan I took my last mock on November 20, and in the last four days, I didn't study. Just played my FIFA games (after 11 months), watched a few sitcoms, and read a book. These worked wonders! I was extremely calm on November 25, and remarkably it was unprecedented.”

Furthermore, as suggested by Niranjan who scored 100 percentile suggests that “To build on my VA, I bought a couple of books online, from Amazon. I utilised Arun Sharma’s book on VARC which is very detailed and has lots of questions for practice. This helped me get a good hold on VARC.”
Remember, “One Size Doesn’t Fit All”
While preparing don’t approach everybody to formulate the plans for the last days. Know what is best for yourself. As what worked for others might not work for you, which can lead to disappointments. Keep yourself energized for the D-day and don’t compare yourself or preparation level that of others. “My message for next year's candidates would be to prepare and take the exam in a positive frame of mind and without putting too much pressure on themselves. One has to work out the strategy of what works best for them, rather than trying to implement exactly the same thing that worked for someone else.”, as suggested by Amit Bikram who bagged 100 percentile in CAT 2019.
Take Care of Health- Eat Light and Healthy

Most importantly, avoid eating food items like muffins, cakes, and other junk food as it takes time and energy to digest. At last, don’t forget to take good sleep don’t hop to cram a little more information by studying late nights.

While preparing, make sure you have written important formulas and while revising just go through those formulas for quick revision. Always try to recall all the formulas before going to bed.
